Steamed Egg w/Tube Tofu

Yesterday and today we really experience bad haze. OMG! Going as high as over 300! We only went out 1/2 day in the morning yesterday and went home to hide in air con room. (Sad, couldnt enjoy the Public Holiday much)

Today haze slowly clears up in the day and with it keeps on rising from late afternoon onwards. And with my aching back, I pretty much guessed due to sleeping posture, I decided to go light. (Reduce as much standing time as possible)

I remembered seeing someing posting in a Facebook group, Steamed Tube Tofu with Prawns and a bit of beaten egg at the bottom. Looks delish but as I want to use up my ingredients I decided to modify. 

The wet wet gravy underneath is so sweet to go with rice

I added chopped tomato, a little minced meat, 1 tube tofu, 2 eggs, gouqizi and added some water. I seasoned it, luckily just enough flavour and it tasted great. My "usually" dont really fancy steamed dished hubby commented it was nice. And the steamed fish was fresh & sweet, yes, a delish dinner tonight! Even my gal kept saying the tube tofu tasted like jelly and its so nice that she wants to have it again. So here, I am sharing the recipe.
